This morning I submitted my resignation at St. Bonaventure University. Angela and I are in the process of trying to sell the house and I have been actively pursuing employment in the Carolinas for a few weeks now. So far we have no offers on the house, and while I have been greatly encouraged by my conversations with business leaders and possible employers in NC, we don’t have jobs to go to, either. Obviously this is a tad on the scary side, and perhaps this by itself illustrates how badly the SBU situation has deteriorated.
Sometime in the next couple months Angela, Ronan, and I will be loading up and moving to Winston-Salem, which is where I seem to have the most connections and hence the best job possibilities. We look forward to being near my friends and family in the area and to having the kind of support system that has been so sorely lacking of late. Who knows, if we can’t find jobs and end up homeless, maybe we’ll even wind up living in somebody’s basement.
In the coming days and weeks I’ll hopefully find time to work up sort of a running account of how we got where we are and what led up to this decision. In the meantime, wish us well, and if you know of anybody who’s hiring…..
